Color Hues #59

 Good afternoon! I'm back again with a new colour pairing from Color Hues! I went all festive with my take.

I had a couple of ideas in my head for this challenge but as I haven't made a start on my Christmas stash yet, I thought I would go down that route.
I made my wreath using some evergreen branch dies from IO which I cut from some sparkly green as well as some other plain shades of green. Once cut, I die cut a hoop of the dark green using a couple of circle dies and stated adding the branches until I had the right look. A few sparkly gold gems and a ribbon bow complete.
I used the layout at The Paper Players for inspiration, adding the wreath to a die cut panel of cream card over a slightly larger gold one and finally onto a small square base card. The sentiment is an oldie but goodie from Woodware.

So where will this colour choice take you? There's lots of fab inspiration from the rest of the team as well as our GD on the Color Hues blog. See you there!

  1. Julie, Such a smart choice to start on Christmas with this color pairing. My brain didn't even go that direction and I have no idea why. Nice card!

  2. I'm kinda kicking myself right now for not thinking about Christmas with this color combo. This is perfection!

  3. Look at you getting a start on your Christmas cards! This is gorgeous! Love that wreath and the beautiful gold details! SO happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

  4. Julie, I love this gorgeous wreath. The touches of gold are just the perfect amount to add shimmer and shine, but not detract from that gorgeous focal image. So glad you shared this beauty with us at the Paper Players this week

  5. This card is gorgeous Jules, and YAY for getting a head start on your Christmas cards!! I'm loving all that greenery and the gold gems and the gold framing too! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

  6. I didn't even think about Christmas with this colour combo but it's perfect! I love the texture of your wreath - perfect layout for our sketch too. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  7. A fabulous first Christmas card and I'm so glad you went this route. Great use of our colors and I love the shine! Happy Christmas is one of my fav sentiments for the holiday.

  8. You've created an absolutely beautiful wreath! Last year at this time, I had 20 Christmas cards done. This year: none! I should definitely have gone down the same path. What an elegant start!

  9. This is one gorgeous, lush wreath! I want one like that for my front door! A fabulous way to show the occasions range of the colour combination - and a great start on your Christmas stash.

  10. Julie, that was a labor of love to create the wreath with all the layers of green branches but the end result is nothing short of glorious! It is a beauty and a fabulous way to being Christmas cards for 2023!

  11. Wow - fabulous card!
    Thanks for playing at the ABC Christmas Challenge!
